According to a criminal complaint, around 8:18 p.m. on Saturday, December 1, Oil City Police, Rescue 7, and Community Ambulance Service were dispatched to a residence on Orange Street for a 28-year-old female in cardiac arrest.

Officer Anderson, of the Oil City Police Department, responded to the scene and was able to verify that the known female had a pulse and was breathing, although she was lying on the floor of the residence, unconscious.

Officer Anderson then conducted a safety sweep of the surrounding area and found two needles, a spoon, and a measuring cup with a white powdery substance with a brown tint within reach of the female.

The complaint notes that representatives of the Oil City Fire Department issued Narcan to the female to reverse the effects of an opioid, and the female then gained consciousness.

According to the complaint, when asked where she obtained the controlled substance, the female stated “Raymond” and pointed to the floor and then also advised the paramedics that she had taken a brown substance that she obtained from Raymond Toy.

Toy was arraigned at 10:40 p.m. on Saturday, December 1, in Magisterial District Judge Matthew T. Kirtland’s office.

Unable to post $25,000.00, he remains lodged in the Venango County Jail.
